Two shots of the Partagás Cigar Factory entrance. It's located in the Old Havana, It is the oldest cigar factory of Cuba and there, emerged the figure of the tobacco lector or reader, profession that still exists. It consists of reading aloud to workers, primarily, the rollers or "torcedor", who are the ones that create the final cigar.

I'm leaving to Paris for a week, so I won't be able to keep up with the comments much, bare with me. Have a nice weekend.
